Every Day

August 7: Low Spend Grocery Month Challenge

I woke up at 4:30am and could not get back to sleep so I got up. I guess my body was telling me that 7 and 1/2 hours was enough sleep. I love early mornings because I get a lot done including my exercise.

Before enjoying my bullet proof coffee, I took the ground turkey out of the freezer to thaw.

Breakfast was another Keto wrap with bacon and eggs for me. Hubby had a turkey and bacon sandwich.

I took a return back to the store today and ran one other errand for Hubby while I was out.

Hubby is spending a lot of time outdoors today cutting the heads off dead flowers. The landscape service does this but Hubby was looking for something to do outdoors because it is the perfect day.

Here is our next week’s menu plan:

Sat. Air fried chicken drumsticks with Frank’s sauce

Sun.To Be Determined ?

Mon. Hot Italian sausage sandwiches & a veggie

Tues. Take out? Possibly Applebee’s?

Wed. Fish sticks or Salmon with  side salad

Thurs. Grilled filet mignon, FF’s, & a veggie

Fri. Leftovers  

This is how I like my summer menu’s – simple and easy. Notice how the fish sticks keep showing up. I really want Hubby to eat them and give me some space in the freezer.

We love our air fryer and we especially like doing drumsticks or wings in it. I usually make a sauce of Frank’s red hot sauce and butter. I just heat it on the stove and meld the flavors all together. But I think on Saturday, we will try one of the new Frank’s sauces that I purchased this week.

Hubby will likely eat his sausage in a bun. I will probably smother mine with peppers and onions and eat it bunless.  

We have not done takeout in a long time. A night off from cooking sounds good to me. I will just pick it up curbside.

I love it when Hubby grills filet mignon. He grills it just exactly as I like it (medium) and it is always superb.

I have left room for two leftover nights this week. If there are no leftovers, I will decide what we will have and let you know on that day’s post.

Dinner tonight was different than on the menu. Hubby wanted a taco wrap. So I cooked ground turkey with taco seasoning and a little bit of chili powder. Then we had our choice of lettuce, onions, a cut up tomato from my son’s garden, black olives,  shredded cheddar cheese, taco meat, and sour cream. I had a little of everything. This was delicious especially in my Keto wrap which is pictured here before I wrapped it.

Being Friday night, Hubby will be hunting for sports on TV, probably golf. I am going to read. 

I hope you all have a good evening.
